Debian Configuration :: Can't Mount Device/partitions With Slim Or Xdm

Jun 28, 2011

I have Debian Testing. I am testing XFCE and LXDE and i want to use display manager other than GDM. I have tried SLIM and XDM but when i use them i can't mount partitions and USB through Thunar, PcMan or Nautilus - i get message that i am not authorized (if i do groups in terminal - adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape audio dip video plugdev games fuse powerdev netdev lpadmin scanner sambashare). When i install GDM everything works fine. I have installed FUSE, HAL, Udev,...I have tried a lot of stuff from AcchLinux forums but nothing worked really.

Debian Configuration :: 7.2.0 - Mount WiFi Device Just After Pushing Firmware

Jun 18, 2015

Working on Debian 7.2.0.

In a specific context I want to automatically make operationnal some USB WiFI devices, deploying automaticaly firwmare (may be not free packages) depending on device ID (vendor ID/product ID). Dev device is a Netgear WNA1000 (driver ath9k, with htc_9271.fw firmware).

I tried to reset the USB bus (modprobe -vr ehci_hcd; modprobe -v ehci_hcd) but it's not really reliable, with sometimes kernel panic.

Is there an "official" way to "mount" the device (the system create the device wlan0) just after deploying the firmware? Maybe using udev ?

Debian Configuration :: Dmraid Device Fails To Mount After Jessie Upgrade

Oct 18, 2015

I eventually gave up and migrated to mdadm. Works just fine. Having upgraded to jessie and solved one problem

[URL] ....

I find the next one. When I boot into jessie my RAID device (just a data partition not /) is not found causing the boot to fail as per problems reported here

[URL] ....

After booting I can mount my RAID device but if it's in the fstab when booting it fails. Also, I notice that some of my lvm device names have changed. After a bit of hunting around I found a couple of solutions pointing to running dmraid as a service during boot and changing the entry for the RAID device in fstab to use the UUID.

[URL] .....

This seems to work. However this seems to be a workaround and as the lvm device paths for my / and /usr partitions have also changed, I'm wondering if there is a bug here as mentioned in the second link?

The / and /usr paths changed to /dev/dm-2 and /dev/dm-3 from the /dev/mapper/ form.

Debian :: Mount NTFS Partitions In /etc/fstab?

Jun 29, 2010

Using: Debian Lenny. I want to mount 2 NTFS partitions in my /etc/fstab file, so that I needn't manually mount them when I want to use them. One of the partitions is the primary partition on the same hard disk as my Debian /, /home, and /swap partitions. The other is a 2nd internal hard disk.

a) Should I use ntfs-3g instead of ntfs as the /etc/fstab filesystem? I want to be able to read and write to the partitions as a user and not just as root.

b) I have read on the forum that "mounting NTFS partitions through fstab is not a great idea" - I thought that any dangers of doing so were ancient history. Why would it not be a good idea?

c) Which options should I use?

d) If I use 'user' instead of 'users' so that one specific user (me) can use the partitions, how do I specify which user name? (The man page is annoyingly unclear about this).

Debian Configuration :: No UUID For Some Partitions?

and *sometimes this works, other times I have to edit the file and /etc/init.d/cryptdisks restart.

Obviously I should use UUIDs here and in fstab but blkid does not list those partitions

Debian :: Auto Mount Ntfs Partitions On Startup?

Jul 12, 2011

Nautilus mounts NTFS partitions when I acces them, and before mounting, it asks for root password. Is there a method to auto-mount ntfs partitions on Debian startup, without requiring root password each time they are automatically mounted ? And without installing additional packages.

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel (2.6.32.24). When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

Debian :: Mount The Multiple Partitions Of A Pendrive - Flashcard?

Dec 27, 2009

I did this with :

Code:

I made two partitions as below

Code:

3. Partition Compact Flash

Make two partitions on CF (use linux fdisk or anything else that is able to make linux filesystem)

1. at least 8MB FAT

2. rest ext2 (recommended) or ext3 - at least 50MB

Copy vmlinuz, initrd, linexec and params.txt to FAT partition.
Uncompress rootfs.tar.bz2 to ext2 partition. (command details at ref. [1])

But :

fdisk -l says only one /dev/sdd1

not sdd1a
not sdd1a

How can I mount those 2 created partitions, since they are hidden under /dev/sdd1 ?

Is it a bug of the kernel?

Debian Configuration :: Mixing Partitions In RAID 5

Mar 21, 2011

I have 2x 1.5TB hard disks and I'm going to buy a new 2TB drive soon. First though I just wanted to check that I could partition off the first 1/4 to 1/3 of the 2TB drive (leaving 1.5TB or more free) and install Debian to that part, then use the remainder of the disk in combination with the 2x 1.5 TB drives in RAID 5? i.e. can you mix whole drives and with partitions from other drives in RAID 5 and/or is it best to just stick with complete drives for the RAID array?I only have room for 3 drives in the small mATX case that houses my NAS device and I want to maximise storage capacity and minimise expense.

Debian Configuration :: LVM Partitions Not Getting Mounted At Boot Time

I have two partitions in LVM. They are added in /etc/fstab to mount automatically. But, they are not working. The process to mount partitions seems to be happening before the service /etc/init.d/lvm2 is started. I can get it mounted using "mount -a" command, but not during the boot time. What should I do get it automatically mounted on every boot?

Debian Hardware :: Mount USB Device By ID

Aug 16, 2014

I just plugged my phone containing a new SD card (bought this morning) to my PC, in order to transfert some data. The problem is that the device is detected in lsusb but doesn't appear in fdisk output (otherwise I could mount it by mount /dev/device_name /mnt/temp). It doesn't appear in GParted or as desktop icon, even after rebooting my PC keeping the device plugged in.

Is it possible to mount the SD card using the lsusb ID? Here are my outputs (the device has ID 0fce:01a7)

Code: Select allroot@dynamic:/home/dovah# lsusb

Debian Configuration :: Lsblk Shows Non-existent Md Partitions After Reboot

Jan 14, 2016

I'm getting weird behaviour while setting up an mdadm RAID1 array on debian 8.2.

After I set-up the array, lsblk shows:

Code: Select allsimon@debian-server:~$ lsblk
NAME                          MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE  MOUNTPOINT
sda                             8:0    0 931.5G  0 disk
`-sda1                          8:1    0 931.5G  0 part
  `-md0                         9:0    0 931.4G  0 raid1
sdb                             8:16   0 931.5G  0 disk

[Code] ....

After a reboot, lsblk shows:

Code: Select allsimon@debian-server:~$ lsblk
NAME                          MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE  MOUNTPOINT
sda                             8:0    0 931.5G  0 disk
`-sda1                          8:1    0 931.5G  0 part
  `-md0                         9:0    0 931.4G  0 raid1
    |-md0p1                   259:0    0 811.6G  0 md

[Code] ...

I don't know where the md0p1 and md0p2 partitions are coming from. My /etc/fstab and /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf both have nothing about this in them.

parted shows one partition on md0:

Code: Select allsimon@debian-server:~$ sudo parted /dev/md0 print
Model: Linux Software RAID Array (md)
Disk /dev/md0: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: loop
Disk Flags:
Number  Start  End     Size    File system  Flags
 1      0.00B  1000GB  1000GB  ntfs

Where the md0p1 and md0p2 partitions are coming from?

I'm setting up the array by doing as follows:

Delete existing device (I've done this a few times):

Code: Select allsudo mdadm --stop /dev/md0
sudo mdadm --remove /dev/md0

Zero drives:

Code: Select allsudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=1024
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=1M count=1024

Create partition tables:

Code: Select allsudo parted /dev/sda mklabel gpt
sudo parted /dev/sdb mklabel gpt

Create full-disk partitions:
Code: Select allsudo parted -a optimal /dev/sda mkpart primary '0%' '100%'
sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sdb mkpart primary '0%' '100%'

Set raid flag on partitions:

Code: Select allsudo parted /dev/sda set 1 raid on
sudo parted /dev/sdb set 1 raid on

Create RAID array:

Code: Select allsudo mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sd[ab]1

Add filesystem (I'm using NTFS, but the problem also happens with ext4)

Code: Select allsudo mkfs.ntfs -f /dev/md0

Debian :: Unable To Mount Usb Device Manually

Jul 17, 2009

Debian Lenny, kernel 2.6.26-2-686 I'm trying to manually mount my digital camera. Picasa recognizes the device and imports pictures. However, I'd like to access my device manually as there are small video files I'd like to retrieve. It's for a fujifilm Z33 WP digicam.

Code:

$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 010: ID 04cb:01f5 Fuji Photo Film Co., Ltd
Bus 005 Device 004: ID 046d:c012 Logitech, Inc. Mouseman Dual Optical
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 413c:0058 Dell Computer Corp. Port Replicator

[code]....

In Picasa...where it says "Select Device", it finds

Code:

USB PTP Class Camera@usb:

and

Code:

USB PTP Class Camera@usb:005,010

selecting either one of them can access the camera directly. How can I pinpoint my device and mount it using the regular mount /mnt/point/ /path/to/my/cam?

Debian Configuration :: No Space Left On Device

Mar 15, 2016

Debian Version: 8.3 (Jessie) KDE (although this is NOT a desktop issue)
Basic Hardware:
Gigabyte Motherboard GA-970A-D3P
AMD 8350 CPU (8 cores)
32 GB DDR3 RAM
120GB SSD SATA-6GB/s
750 WD Black SATA-6GB/s

I am getting "Error: No space left on device" regularly during updates or installs, but why. Here is data on the disks, filesystems, etc...

Code: Select all df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1        81G   27G   50G  35% /
devtmpfs         16G     0   16G   0% /dev
tmpfs            16G   76K   16G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs            16G   18M   16G   1% /run

[code]...

Seems very doubtful that inodes are the killer.I have googled and followed all the threads, and search these forums and found nothing that fits - every answer there was focused on avaiolable space and inodes..And to make the cheese even more binding, the issue has cropped up on another 8.3 system with far more disk space (larger hard drives) and lots more unused inodes

Code: Select alldf -h
Filesystem                        Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/dm-0                         907G  6.6G  855G   1% /

Debian Configuration :: Missing CD / DVD Device In Squeeze

Apr 3, 2010

I've been testing Squeeze to determine whether KDE4 is finally suitable for my primary machine. Everything seems to be working fine except for detection of IDE devices. My CD/DVD drive no longer automounts and the reason seems to be that no device is being created. My Lenny system detects the drive as /dev/hda, but no such device exists in Squeeze. During boot, Squeeze appears to detect the drive as /dev/sr0 (according to dmesg), but in fact that device does not exist either.I'm actually running the Lenny kernel, as I am unable to compile my Ralink wireless driver (rt2860sta) using the Squeeze kernel. Also, for inquiring minds, I use removable HDD drive bays on my systems to simplify testing.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Not Working With Sid And New Device?

Dec 8, 2010

The computer networking works fine with a normal static setup, but adding a USB wireless device is not successful. It is my own network so the wpa-ssid and wpa-psk are known to work with Lenny and a previous wireless device.The device is recognized (lsusb) and the driver is confirmed to be in the kernel (lsmod). Here is the iwconfig output:

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off
Power Management:off

After typing: ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.144 up I can ping that address, but it is not working. I have just done a fresh install of Sid so that I could get the 2.6.35 kernel which contains the ath9k_htc driver for the USB wireless device that I am using. The firmware is ar9271.fw but my source of that is questionable because it does not seem readily available. I am temporarily using a PCMCIA wired connection which is what I am using to connect to the computer via telnet. (This is just for convenience so as to avoid getting up all the time.) Here is the ifconfig output:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:05:07:d9:11
inet addr:192.168.1.122 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::240:5ff:fe07:d911/64 Scope:Link

[code]...

That file works with the previous USB wireless device under Lenny. Am I doing something wrong or is the driver and firmware just not up to snuff yet?
